You Can Make A Difference, Too!

Every change you make, no matter how large or small, has an impact on our environment. Here are some small steps that can have a big effect.



  • Walk, bike or take a bus instead of driving.
  • Set your printer to double-sided default to save paper.
  • Look into sharing a printer with your housemates to reduce energy usage.
  • Use power strips and shut them off at night.
